ASUS Transformer 300 won’t turn on

Monday, August 27, 2012

I picked up my Transformer today to check whether the Jelly Beam update was finally available in Canada. And it wouldn’t turn on, even when I put it in the keyboard dock.

Turns out that ‘standby’ means ‘burn up all the battery, just at a slower rate’ rather than ‘go to sleep until I tell you to wake up’. Then it won’t turn on until the battery has been charged to a few percent.

Which is unfortunate because if you power it off, it takes about three times as long to boot as my netbook does… which rather defeats the point of having a tablet.
